Bottom-placed side West Bromwich Albion will continue their miserable season when they face Burnley at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
Relegation is almost a certainty for the Baggies at this point, and players at the club must already be thinking about their next moves.
In their last league game, they conceded two late goals to lose 2-1 at Bournemouth. They have managed only 20 points thus far, and ten points separates them from the safety.
They have lost their last eight games in all competition and have managed just three wins in total in the league this season.
Meanwhile, the Clarets have picked up some form following a run of eleven league games without a win. They have won their last two games, and it’s no surprise that their return to form has coincided with Chris Wood’s recovery from his injury.
The New Zealand striker has scored three goals in his last two league appearances, and he is a good bet to score in this game.
The Clarets are currently placed seventh in the league table with 43 points. Only five points separate them from Arsenal in the sixth spot, and the prospect of European football must still be a motivating factor for them.
